 "Perfect Strangers" by Annelise Marie Vuono

Lost Along the Way exhibit

Discarded as trash or perhaps just lost along the way as you walk the sidewalks, streets and, alleys of York.

The Parliament presents Lost Along the Way, a show of those street finds you've seen and photographed in your daily life.

Instagram tie-in: Join in on the fun ahead of and during the show by snapping your street finds and sharing them with us on social media using #ParliamentStreetFinds.
